Basic teaching skills training: 26-27 October 2019

 

Are you an untrained Scottish Country dance relief teacher? Do you get asked to look after classes with no real background or formal training?

 

The Scottish Country Dance Club of Canberra has invited Ros McKie from Hunter Valley to run a workshop in Canberra to support people in this situation.
The aim is to give participants the basic skills they need to be more confident when stepping in to organise a class.

 

If you find yourself in this sort of situation and would like more information about the workshop call Derek Synnott on  0481123800 or email synnottd@yahoo.com.
